Ever since Maksim Chmerkovskiy revealed that he would not be returning to Dancing With The Stars, fans have been wondering if we’d ever see him again. While watching his brother this season has been great, it’s definitely not the same without Maks. Luckily for us, our favorite Ukrainian hottie will be back on the dance floor tonight!
That’s right folks, Maks is back! At least for a night, that is! So, why is Maksim Chmerkovskiy returning to DWTS? To help out his little brother! In an effort to shake things up a bit, the celebrities are going to have to compete in a “side by side” challenge tonight, in which each couple has a pro couple to dance with them. Both the pro and celebrity couples will dance on their own, and then side by side so the judges have a comparison.
Maksim’s younger brother, Val Chmerkovskiy broke the news to E!, revealing Maksim’s return, and adding: “He’s really excited to dance again, especially to dance side by side with us.” Val Chmerkovskiy and his partner Zendaya Coleman will be dancing the Argentine Tango, and Maks will be joined by fellow pro dancer, Anna Trebunskaya, who was also left out of this season’s competition. While Maksim has decided to sit out this season, he is still under contract with the show until 2015, so chances are, this is not the last we will see of him.
Tony Dovoloni, Tristan McManus, and Chelsie Hightower are also returning tonight for this special challenge.
Will you tune in to see Maksim Chmerkovskiy return to DWTS tonight?
